Yes and no: The symptoms you've described would not be related to a toothache. However, if you have sinus infection involving the maxillary sinus (situated above the upper molars( it can cause tooth pain. See your dentist to assess the tooth pain.

Sinus "toothache": A sinus toothache is the result of a sinus pressure from the maxillary teeth. Very common.
